Real Madrid bring forward Pepe contract talks

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is ready to bring forward new contract talks with Pepe.

It was expected Pepe would have to wait until next year to discuss new terms.

However, Perez now plans to meet with Jorge Mendes, Pepe's agent, this week to discuss a new deal.

Real intend to extend the defender's deal from 2012 to 2015 and also improve his current £1.1 million salary.
